I Can Forgive

“I remember when I used to like you,

I hope I can again”

Your card read on my birthday

I’ve been gone for over 100 days

that’s the first thing you’ve had to say

It’s one birthday to remember

It’s my third year gone in a row

and yet you still find a way

to make it all about you

not flowers, candy, or a cake

just a card

that makes me feel sick

That’s ok, though

because I don’t mind

I will always be above you

I know how to forgive

and you’ll never forget

what could have been
